The Nonlinear Dynamics and Control research group and the Rolls-Royce Vibration University Technology Centre have an opportunity for a research position in Computational Nonlinear Mechanics for response prediction to thermo-acoustic instabilities in aeroengine combustors. This position is associated with HEAVEN, an EU Clean Aviation research programme which aims to carry out ground-breaking research to accelerate sustainable propulsion and decarbonisation research.
This position offers the opportunity to join a team including more than 20 academics and researchers, and to collaborate with the other academic and industrial partners of the MALIT project. The post is based in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the South Kensington Campus. The Department of Mechanical Engineering has an outstanding international reputation for both its research and its teaching. In the 2021 REF assessment, the Engineering Faculty was ranked first across the UK.
Duties and Responsibilities
As a successful applicant, you will be responsible for the development of models and analysis methodologies enabling the prediction of the mechanical components’ response to rumble – a thermo-acoustic instability generated by the combustor and exacerbated by modern lean-burn technologies. More specifically:
Skills, knowledge and experience
To apply for this position, you must have experience, including a proven publication track-record, in one or more of the following areas:
